7 Bras for Breastfeeding Moms

I just crossed over the one-year mark for breastfeeding, so be assured I’ve done my homework when it comes to finding the right bra while in the throes of nursing. Breastfeeding poses its own set of obstacles during the postpartum experience, but coming across a bra that supports this endeavor could be equally as challenging. A comfortable fit, the right hold, breathable fabrication, straps that detach (or easily detach if it's a non-nursing bra) while not being totally hideous is quite the accomplishment. That said, there are certainly a few styles that fit the bill both in the nursing bra and non-nursing bra genres. You just have to dig a little bit deeper to find them.

    I live in the Northeast and when I woke up this morning, my house was freezing. It had been in the mid 40's overnight and we haven't turned the heat on yet. Suddenly, my normal duvet felt too thin. The socks on my bare feet too non-existent. Winter is coming, and I'd been drinking rosés still pretending it was summer.

    I couldn't put it off any longer. It was time to do my annual tradition of winterizing my home—and I don't mean making sure my pipes and walls have enough insulation (though obviously that's important too). I mean the act of evaluating every room and wondering if it has enough hygge to it.

    If you've never heard of hygge, it's a Danish word that means a quality of coziness or contentment.
